It isn't the first time the driverless shuttle has hit Las Vegas's streets.

If the shuttle were capable of reversing away from the oncoming vehicle, it might have avoided the collision, but according to a statement released by city officials, the autonomous vehicle did exactly what it was supposed to do by stopping once its sensors registered the truck.

'Unfortunately the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle.

Was the driverless shuttle at fault in the accident? In return, the company will donate $1 per every passenger who rides the shuttle to those affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas that took place in October.

The NAVYA Arma fully electric shuttle can transport up to 12 passengers. AAA chose Las Vegas for the launch because of the state's progressive regulations on autonomous vehicles, heavy investment in innovation, the high volume of visitors and a sunny, dry climate that's favorable for testing new driving technology.

A driverless shuttle bus was in a auto accident the first day the electric vehicle was being tested in Las Vegas.

The eight-passenger shuttle is now offering free rides to people along a half-mile loop in the city's Fremont East "Innovation District". The shuttle is operated and maintained by Keolis, which also led the efforts to integrate its vehicle into the smart-city infrastructure, in partnership with the city of Las Vegas and NAVYA.

The AAA Free Self-Driving shuttle, an Arma vehicle built by Navya that utilizes LIDAR technology and Global Positioning System, was on a test run yesterday in the Fremont East neighborhood when it was hit by a delivery truck.
